The Converse Cons AS-1 skate shoe is the pro model of Alexis Sablone. Made for Ollies, Kickflips and endless sessions in the city. Noble smooth leather uppers give the Converse AS-1 Pro an urban sneaker look. But the AS-1 shoe also has some functional skateboarding features.
At first glance, the Converse Cons AS-1 skate shoe looks like a simple sneaker for skating. The shoe was inspired by the Converse Fastbreak – a basketball silhouette with cult status. However, like Alexis Sablone, her skate shoe is much more layered than you might think. You can shop the current colorways of the Converse Cons AS-1 Pro easily online at skatedeluxe skate shop.
An eye for detail: the features of the AS-1
Alexis Sablone's skate shoe is a classic cup sole construction that has a few surprises in store for you. In the ollie area, you'll find several "bumpers" to prevent the laces from ripping there. The top lace eyelet is reinforced, recessed into the upper and allows heel-lock lacing for an extra snug fit.
